AC Milan
2-0 Barcelona
The former Portsmouth midfielder was just a delight to watch when he helped AC Milan to beat Barcelona 2-0 in the Uefa Champions League last Wednesday. It was a good show for a man who had just returned from a six-month lay-off. He run tirelessly and consistently did well to stifle Barca’s game plan. He ended the night on the score sheet after scoring the second goal. Muntari continued with his great displays on Sunday when Milan drew 1-1 with his former club Inter Milan.
Congratulations to Muntari, Goal.com's 22nd Ghana Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mention
KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG - AC MILAN

It was more like a Ghana show last Wednesday night at San Siro as Boateng was also on hand to help Milan shine. The former Ghana recruit opened the scoring and contributed immensely towards the Rossoneri’s dominance. The 25-year-old also performed well in the 1-1 draw with Inter over the weekend.


KENNEDY ASHIA - LIBERTY PROFESSIONALS

Ashia lived up to the billing at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday. He scored a brace to help the Dansoman lads to record a famous 3-3 draw against Kumasi Asante Kotoko. He was quite prolific in the first round and wasted no time in communicating what he is capable of doing in the second round of the Ghana Premier League.

Michael Essien - Real Madrid

The 30-year-old was heavily involved in Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Sevilla over the weekend. In the absence of the injured Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira who was rested for the Uefa Champions League, Essien was really needed to boss the midfield for the Merengues and he did exactly that.
